What is your profession? Approximately what percentage of people in your profession identify as the same political affiliation as you do? I am a social worker. I identify as liberal. Of the Social Workers I have
in all my work, i am a caregiver or a helper. sometimes a coordinator. most of the people i know and affiliate with would call them selves NDP. canadian democrat. or Green I guess. or just community oriented. i do see that, similar work drawing similar folk
I’m a trucker and find many who identify as conservative. They like things that are time-honored because in most cases, they just work! And give predictable results. But the downfall of Conservatism as a religion is that one can become just a relic of the past, denying new things just because they are untested.
And the downfall of Liberalism is that it loves tossing “time-honored” and “still-working” in the proverbial landfill just because it may not sparkle and shine like new.
I don’t identify with any political stance, because both exercise folly and are not always right.
To stand with either one, seriously limits one’s ability to stand for common sense and Truth.
Besides, when was the last time you saw a party that didn’t leave things all messed up?
We have a similar two opposing parties; one of which wants to go back without looking ahead . . . and the other that wants to go ahead without considering the wisdom of the past! We’ve handed both of them their notices before when they got too silly.
But we also have a “Green” party, some soft communists and used to have a Rhino party. (Sigh!) I miss the ol’ Rhino! He’s who you voted for when everyone else was full ‘o shit, and he sort of horned in on their parties when he stole their votes.
I am in the Information Technology field, but I do not work for an IT company. I work for a west coast based company that is highly, and visibly progressive. I would guess the same, that about less than 5% of my co-workers identify anything other than liberal. But, that’s just a guess. We are also a global company, so I would imagine the party affiliations percentages change depending on the part of the world. Since we are visibility progressive, I do not think tons of conservative minded people seek us out.
I have been conservative from childhood. I am retired now and I don’t know and don’t care what other retired people are. There were times that the Democrat was the best choice for the White House position and I voted for the Democrat. My being a Conservative doesn’t govern my vote. I consider many things about the person running for office.
When I owned and ran a Housekeeping and Uniformed Maid Service, I don’t think it mattered what party my service staff belonged to. The more important issue was that they NOT argue politics with the clients while on the job!!!
When you die you are in space. Time is no longer linear. You travel in space to the same moment in time. You can go anywhere in space, but you will always be in the exact same moment. What moment in time do you choose?
I am not 100% sure we have souls, so will I be floating around space? I have no idea. But, what I do know; I need somewhere to put my body when I die. I have plans for a green burial. Wrap my body in a mushroom suit, and let the mushrooms absorb the toxins from my body. I will turn into the earth as beautiful compost, and enrich the soil. My last gift to my earth.
The site is glitching very badly for me. I can no longer access notifications or post new questions. Maybe it is because I am accessing off of a Mac, but the site is almost entirely unusable at this point.
